OUT/EX JULY: CREATING REM LEZAR
FINALLY, an OUT/EX for the whole family...
This month, Blair Sterrett has handpicked one of the most ridiculous children's movies ever made. Rem Lezar comes straight from the Lost Media Archive to you... That is if you choose to show up. Our July 19th Audience will get an eyeful of blue mullets and bad spandex costumes and an earful of bizarre music. This event will also feature live music by YOUR LITTLE PONY, and a couple of weird snickers commercials, that, along with "Rem Lezar" define the career of one very fine actor...
Here is a synopsis:
Zack gets in trouble during class for daydreaming about a superhero named Rem Lezar, and is sent to the principal's office. After a discussion about his classroom behavior, he storms out upset that no one understands him and that he isn't the problem but that the adults are. Later in art class, Zack sculpts a model of Rem Lezar, of which Ashlee notices and has also dreamed about and has drawn a picture of. Ashlee is the first person to believe that Rem Lezar is more than imaginary, but she will not speak to Zack as long as he keeps up his sexist attitude. The two decide to bring Rem Lezar to life. That day, the two obtain a male mannequin, though by what means is not explained, and dress it up like Rem Lezar. Rem Lezar hears their desires and comes to life most unexpectedly. He can live but one single day unless they find the Quixiotic Medallion, which has the power to keep Rem alive. The fear-mongering face, Vorock, tells them it is hidden at the height of imagination and that some never find it in the course of their entire lifetime. The three must search for the medallion, but do not know where to look. Zack believes that it would be at the top of the Twin Towers, whereas Ashlee believes it to be in the mountains. They search both locations with no luck, only to discover that the highest point of imagination is love.
... WE PROMISE THAT IF YOU LIKED TURKISH STAR WARS, THE STAR WARS CHRISTMAS SPECIAL, OUR ABOMINIBLE SELF-HELP VIDEOS AND ALL THE OTHER WIERD STUFF WE HAVE SHOWN YOU AT OUT/EX.... YOU'LL HATE THIS!... ACTUALLY, YOU'LL LOVE TO HATE IT... YOU'LL LOVE IT. ...We love it. …and so will you.
This event is free!
